Originally begun as part of First Unitarian’s social justice efforts, Connect & Breathe is now a separate 501©(3) not for profit organization which creates safe space to talk about abortion experiences by offering a talkline staffed by people trained to listen and provide unbiased support and encouragement of self-care. Whether abortion has affected you or a loved one, yesterday or years ago, Connect & Breathe is here for you. If you feel called to volunteer with this organization, please reach out to our church’s coordinators (below).
First Unitarian is honored to be one of many local member congregations of Roc/ACTS, which endeavors to transform our community together toward equity and justice through community organizing. Interested in learning more? Reach out to our Roc/ACTS church coordinators (below)
